Construction products; application for notification as testing laboratory or certification body

In order to be able to participate in the assessment and verification of constancy of performance of construction products within the framework of CE marking, independent third-party bodies (testing laboratories and certification bodies) require notification.

Description

Prerequisites

The most important requirements for notified bodies include impartiality, the absence of conflicts of interest, technical competence, sufficient experience, and suitable premises and technical equipment.

The requirements are regulated in detail in Article 43 of the Construction Products Regulation.

A prerequisite for notification is accreditation by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS). As part of this procedure, DAkkS also checks whether the specific requirements of the Construction Products Regulation (Article 43) are met.

Procedure

Submit the accreditation certificate(s) including annexes together with the completed application form(s) to Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt).

If the requirements for acting as an independent third party are met, DIBt issues a corresponding notification and notifies the body to the European Commission and the other EU member states.
